    What are those medals? Are they forms of appreciation from others? I saw other people's posts and they had different medals. Is there a list of all medals and what they mean? Sorry for being such a *newcomer. :)

    If you changed it already then I would hate to see how it looked before. It's still quite large and very annoying and I hate to break it to you but I doubt anyone is going visit any of your pages or email you

    Sorry if I annoyed you. Happy? Instead of me gonna fight with you, I'm actually gonna say thanks because without you and the others who warned me, I could have been banned.

    Thanks.

    I can't just thank you for removing all your personal contact information due to your age, I must also thank you for not using the horrible atrocity that is Comic Sans MS in your sig also. =)

    I feel a great sigh of relief now that this bullcrap about a newcomer's sig is over. It wasn't really supposed to be Comic Sans. It was supposed to be Lucida Sans and it was too late when people already started throwing crap at me.

    I'm pretty sure that for him to be providing direct contact information on his sig, due to his age, would have caused GBAtemp.net to be breaking a US law. I don't think they would have banned him for it but if GBAtemp.net is hosted in the US then they have to comply with the online children's privacy act.

    Now I'm thinking I could have screwed GBATEMP.

    Nice job, Eugene. Really.

    Yup, your title/medals change according to post count. Oh, and when you hit 500 posts you can change your member title to whatever you want in your profile options.

    EDIT: Of course Staff members have different medals depending on their services to the site.

    And then I proceed to cry about it until you get kicked out. If your name is tagzard or Alan John so far, others will soon come.
